Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I place an order?
The easiest way to place an order is via the contact us tab on our website but you can also call us if you'd prefer. Once we receive your enquiry a member of the Sugar Mama team will be in contact to confirm your order and provide you with an invoice.
We aim to fulfil all orders within 10-14 working days, however during busy periods such as Christmas, this may take longer. If we have any issues fulfilling your order within this time, we will contact you.
We would advise allowing up to two weeks to ensure the fulfilment of your order in time for your event, especially for larger orders.
Please note:- Sugar Mama only operates in the UK and Candy Carts can only be ordered by residents living in London or the
surrounding areas - please check your location with us prior to ordering. Where orders are outside our catchment area, a small
delivery fee may be added.
2. How do I pay for my order?
Sugar Mama customers are required to pay 50% of their order value at the time of order confirmation or at our discretion,
depending upon customer delivery date. When you place your order, you will receive an invoice at which the 50% order value is due
to confirm your order. Payments can be made by PayPal or bank transfer, details will be included in the invoice. The remaining
balance will be due and needs to be paid in full, no later than 14 days before your event or agreed delivery date.
If you wish to make the payment in full when you receive your invoice, you are welcome to do so. Be sure to include your order reference number, which can be found on your invoice, when making bank transfers, so we can notify you, when we have received
Candy Carts: Sugar Mama will ask for a £50 refundable safety deposit on top of the 50% order value with the completion of all
Candy Cart bookings, in order to secure your hire. This is to ensure the safe return of the cart and all cart accessories - the safety
deposit will be returned via the customers preferred payment method - cash payments can be made upon collection and inspection of the cart.
Please note:- Sugar Mama will not dispatch any orders that have not been paid in full. If you have any issues making the payment,
please contact us immediately, so we can make alternative arrangements if necessary - additional fees may occur.

All orders can be cancelled up to 14 days before your event date and an 80% refund will be returned. Any orders cancelled with less
than 14 days notice will incur a 50% fee.
